This article will show you an interesting about Son Doong cave. Have you ever heard about the Son Doong Cave? Do you know that it is so big that a 40-story building can fit inside it quite easily? And that there is even a jungle inside it?

If you are curious enough and ready to explore the world’s largest cave, do not hesitate to set out on a trip to Vietnam’s Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park in the central province of Quang Binh.

Local authorities have recently announced that they are opening trial tours to the cave that is 150 meters high and 200 meters wide. If the pilot project proves successful, Son Doong will be officially opened to caving tourism between February and August every year.

Under the trial project, there will be two tours every month, with each lasting five or seven days, the Dan Tri online newspaper reported, citing the Quang Binh People’s Committee.

The tours will consist of three trekking trips, with each trip having seven tourists and 15 local porters at most, it reported.

The mouth of Son Doong was first discovered by Ho Khanh, a resident. Later, in 2009, Khanh acted as a guide for expeditions by members of the British Cave Research Association led by Howard Limbert and his wife Deb Limbert.

That year the cave became known worldwide after it was announced as the world’s largest.

Son Doong tours are among plans that local authorities and the Phong Nha – Ke Bang Tourism Center, the main operator of tours at the park, have recently introduced to boost tourism in the area.

Previously, in May, they had introduced a new tour to the Sinh Ton (living) Valley and Thuy Cung (undersea palace) Cave.

The tour starts at the Dau Rai primaeval forest, which hosts hundreds of centuries-old trees with trunks so big it would take three to four adults to embrace them. Dau Rai is a plant (Dipterocarpus alatus) native to Vietnam and several other countries like Bangladesh and Cambodia.

From the forest, tourists go along Tien (fairy) Spring to Nuoc Lan (diving waters) Cave, where they are provided with special equipment to discover the wild cave.

Next is the Thuy Cung Cave which has “extraordinarily blue” waters.

 

The tour ends at Sinh Ton – a valley that covers more than 2,000 hectares and is surrounded by limestone mountains.

If tourists choose two-day tours instead of a day-long tour, they will spend one night in the valley. Meals of wild vegetables, fish, grilled meat and rice balls are included in the tours.

U Bo – one of the park’s highest mountains – is also expected to open to tourism on a trial basis next month, according to the website of Phong Nha – Ke Bang Tourism Center.

From the mountain’s top, located more than 1,000 meters above the sea level, tourists can get a bird’s eye view of famous sites in Quang Binh as far as 40 kilometres away, like the Nhat Le Beach, Dong Hoi Town, and the Bao Ninh white sand beach.

Surrounding the mountains are primaeval forests and historic relic sites.

  • FOOD TOUR ON MOTORBIKE - BEST WAY TO EXPLORE HO CHI MINH!

    FOOD FUN

    My husband and I had been recommended this tour by some tourists that had just done it. We were taken on the tour by Tiny and Juho. They were fantastic! They spent 4 hours taking us around and giving us an insight into life for the Vietnamese people. Along the way we were educated and well fed. The food was fantastic and in abundance. We felt completely safe and there was no concern about being on the busy roads. This is a must while in Ho Chi Minh!.

    EXCELLENT TOUR, WITH FIRST CLASS GUIDES TEE AND KENT

    We did the half day scooter tour, and couldn't have been more impressed. It was my partners first time on a scooter, and coupled with the HCM traffic she was a little nervous. Tee and Kent, our guides put her at ease right away. We visited temples, the flower market, motor cycle market, amongst others as well as fruit and vegetable produce from the Mekong Delta being sold on the banks of the Saigon River. We went up and down tiny alleys in areas off the main tourist areas. We got caught in a heavy downpour which added to the fun of the day. The supplied ponchos helped keep us dry. The guides, Tee and Kent, speak really good english, and explained things about the historical significance of certain places we visited really well. One of the best parts was our stop to have an authentic vietnamese coffee and we each chatted about our various cultures and interests. This has been my 3rd visit to Vietnam and I have done lots of tours and sightseeing, but this was right up there with one of the best things I have done. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone Thank you for a wonderful tour Tee and Kent Andrew and Maree

  • GOOD FUN!

    A FANTASTIC TOUR

    What an incredible night of exploring "non-touristy" delicious street food all over the city! Sophie is an incredibly fun, knowledgeable, thoughtful girl that beautifully wove through not only the maze of crazy traffic, but also the maze of my picky eating!! I cannot speak highly enough of what a fun and energetic tour this is! I highly recommend this experience!!

    TINY FOR THE WIN!

    I did the food tour around the city, and was lucky to get Tiny as my tour guide. She was amazing! Super friendly, very knowledgeable, and excellent English. I actually ended up with a private tour with her, and time just flew by as she took me from one delicious place to another, and talked about food, Vietnamese culture, and life. Highly recommend this company and in particular Tiny as your tour guide. Hi Tiny! - Your american bf
